View Full Version : PSM for Next Generation?!?!

01-23-2002, 08:48 AM
I've been a loyal subscriber to Next Generation magazine since '95. As you probably know, they ceased publication and January was their last issue.

Well, yesterday I got a copy of Playstation Magazine in the mail with a note explaining that this rag was the substitution they selected for the remainder of my Next Generation subscription. LOL! Couldn't they have picked something LESS interesting?

Anyway, I looked through it yesterday. They were highlighting all the best games of 2001 and they showed upcoming games for 2002. Once again I was reminded how much I love my XBOX. PS2 graphics were so jaggarific that I couldn't believe that anyone would own such a steaming pile of...silicon.

I got a little satisfaction when I saw an advertisement for Transworld Surf that said (in small print) "XBOX SCREENS SHOWN". I was so proud. :)

PSM is the best video game magazine on the market... even if it is for playstation.

Offical dreamcast magazine was the best... but sadly, that did not last. and OXM is down right pathetic, when you compare.

Man that sucks, they should have at least given you a choice instead of going brand specific.

Nice note about the 'xbox screens shown'. :D

I hope you're joking. Ever since the DC came out in the fall of 99, they've been positively craptacular. They have a serious inferiority complex. I love their cry about being unbiased because they are unofficial. How can they be unbiased when their success as a magazine rests soley on the success of the playstation console? Of course they are going to tell you the Sony is the greatest because it would be against their interests to do otherwise, unofficial or not. Once competitionknocked on their door, they showed how biased they could be. One of my favorite highlights: comparing a year old game, NFL2K, to the nearly done Madden 2001 to illustrate the game's superiority. That's unbiased integrity for you.

I heard that the most recent OXM demo disc showed some mouth-watering clips of Brute Force. Man, I want to see that! I don't get the magazine but I am seriously thinking about it

PSM is a pretty pathetic magazine. My friend has a subscription and I look thru his mag, he looks thru my Xbox mag...I'm done looking at Maximo screenshots and reading crappy articles about how great Devil May Cry is...and I have to wait about 25 more minutes for my friend to finish staring in amazement at the Enclave screenshots...

They did give me the option to cancel the subscription and get the money back for my remaining issues. However, 2/02 would have been my last issue anyway. I'm not going to fight to get my dollar back. :)

Good luck on getting OXM. That would be some consolation.
